1954 Oxbridge Trans-Africa Expedition
The Oxford and Cambridge Trans-Africa Expedition was a race undertaken in 1954 between undergraduates of Oxford and Cambridge universities, crossing Africa from north to south - Cape Town - and back again. The journey traversed 25,000 miles.
The Expedition vehicles were two Land Rover Series I 86” station wagons - one for each three-man university team, and was won by Oxford. The Expedition travelled through Tunisia, across the Sahara, into Egypt, through Ethiopia.
The Expedition was such a success that it inspired the famed 1955-6 Oxford and Cambridge Far Eastern Expedition, which travelled overland from London to Singapore in two Land Rovers.
